If the TV (sound settings, output mode) will let you leave the internal speakers on with the optical output active then you connect a bluetooth transmitter to the optical input and pair your headphone with it.
If the TV won't let you do that then you will need to split the optical output, connect both a soundbar and the BT transmitter to that.
You will need to set the optical output to PCM stereo in either case.

However, to avoid using a splitter, there is an Avantree unit I have seen (UK and Australian Amazon) that has a pass-through mode (put the unit first in  line, then use a second optical cable to the Soundbar, then pair your Blutooth Headphones to the BT transmitter):

Get a "spdif to analog" adapter - Bluetooth headphones are suggested.

About $6 US from ebay or similar (it is easy to pay for more than you need). You will also need:

spdif cable [coaxial (orange color phono connector)or optical/Toslink]

usually a 5 vdc power source - using either (center pin positive) :

    low cost is a USB to barrel (round) cable to a nearby USB output or

    otherwise a small 5vdc power adapter

most adapters have a red & white phono jack outputs, so you may need an RCA to headphone adapter depending on your headphones. (I would choose to transmit via Bluetooth to wireless headphones. but would require a spdif to Bluetooth adapter instead.)

Note: Some LGsmartTVs have Bluetooth built in;  check yours.

LGtv (optical/Toslink or coaxial)   TO  dig/ana adapter  TO  headphones

      i currently have a LG oled55cx tv which has not got an audio out setting for bluetooth headphones + internal at the same time. the nearest option is bluetooth surround + internal but the sound on the headphones is very poor and distorted. i'm currently having to run a wire to my headphones if my wife is watching tv as well. are there any other brands or ranges out there which has a bluetooth headphone + internal sound out option. thanks.

      I have tried to use my wireless headphones in conjunction with my external speakers so I can hear the sound at a different level to others.
      I can get it to work but not properly because my soundbar is connected via HDMI simplink (Sonos Beam).
      When I turn simplink off the Bluetooth speakers work great but no sound from TV Speakers or soundbar even if I pick multiple speakers the sound only comes out of the headphones.
      Is there anyway around this?

      We have two LG TV's that stopped connecting to our PLEX media server after the last update. TImes out saying "Checking connection speed to Raspberrypi" which the PLEX is on
      Upgraded the Mesh Routers before trying anything, still only the PLEX app doesn't work
      Our other TCL TV and Roku and TIVO still work with Plex, so this is only the LG TV's that can't connect anymore.
      Another annoying error after the last update is that any Streaming app (Amazon, Netflix, and DIsney) now fall out of the app and go back to HDMI port 1 if we pause for 30 seconds.  Which we have always done for a Bathroom break or getting drinks.

      We ran an ARC sound bar with surround sound on a C9 OLED TV - this works fine . I would like to add a bluetooth headphone for my partner to use as her hearing is getting worse but key is to operate both the sound bar and the bluetooth headphones at same time  - Has anyone done this . I can see away to do it with internal speaker option but quaility of speakers is not too good on the C9.
